Global Hospital Acquired Pneumonia Treatment Market Expected to Value Over US$ 1.5 Billion by 2026 End

  • 18 Jun 2019

The global hospital acquired pneumonia treatment market is estimated to value over US$ 1.5 billion with a CAGR of 3% during the forecast period, 2019 to 2026

In the recent past, the public healthcare system is facing a difficult challenge in the form of Hospital Acquired Pneumonia (HAP). It is a type of pneumonia when a person is hospitalized for more than 48 hours. In pneumonia, the lungs are conditioned to an inflammatory state which affects alveoli which are microscopic air sacs. One of the primary reasons that patients acquire HAP is by bacteria, viruses and some other organisms. The distinguishing factor is the manner in which the infection is acquired. Another reason for acquiring HAP is the rise in the geriatric population across the world due to which the hospital stays become lengthy increasing the chances of getting acquired by pneumonia. The HAP is prevalent among patients who are immunocompromised and who have undergone surgery. It is also found primarily among newborn babies as they are highly probable of acquiring nosocomial pneumonia due to Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). The overall occurrence of HAP in the U.S is around 1.6% i.e. 3.63 per 1000 patients. There is an ever-increasing demand for HAP drugs because of an unhealthy environment in hospitals along with a poor hospital infrastructure in developing economies. Due to the presence of a large number of vendors, the overall HAP drug market is pretty much splintered.  Very few vendors are in favour of adopting pricing strategies that will increase the market competition. Companies are likely to embrace high investment strategies to adopt newer research and development programs, advanced technologies, acquisitions and mergers to strengthen their market position.
